#FreePalestine


 

I think by now, everyone knows that Palestine and Israel have been in War ever since 1948 when the land of Palestine was taken away from them forcefully, and unjustly. This as anyone would agree is morally wrong and unjust. But at the end of the day, the whole issue is a really big matter, that I, myself cannot resolve, but pray to God that one day, the two countries will be at peace together, for “Love is stronger than segregation and discrimination”

I strongly advise everyone to support the Palestine Children’s Relief Funds http://www.pcrf.net/ as they are doing an amazing job in helping the children of Palestine, regain their life and future, and are giving more people the chance to live, the chance to have an education and the chance to find freedom every single day. The PCRF has worked hard to provide many sick and injured Arab children in the Middle East with specialized medical care that is not available locally. The PCRF not only accomplishes this by sending teams of surgeons to treat children locally, but by also arranging cost-free treatment for them abroad.

Not many people realize this, but the fear and pain that the children and people of Palestine are enduring is terrible and is the same issue that is going on in Uganda. Be the voice for these children. I know some people may think I am crazy, for talking about resolving two issues at once, but I believe if you believe, you’ll achieve. I’m a Believer.

SO Please, help promote equality and peace, by supporting Palestine. Remember “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one”

Living With Scoliosis


About four months ago, I was diagnosed with this “thing” called Scoliosis….to be honest I had no idea what it was, but all I could think about was “ahhh am I going to die” “why is this happening to me” I never actually heard of it until I was diagnosed. The story started like this….

When I was about 13 I realized that I was having terrible back pain in the right side of my back, I would complain every time, so my mum took me to the G.P, who said all it was, was growing pain and that it’ll go away in about 6 months. So I forgot about the pain, not realizing I had Scoliosis. In June 2011, I was tying my laces getting ready to go out with my mum when I realized a lump on the right side of my  back…so I called my mum and started freaking out!

My mum immediately took me to the hospital and told them what the problem was. I had an x-ray and after the x-ray was done, the doctor turned to me and said “What do you think it is” and I said “Well according to Google, it’s called Scoliosis, and it’s a curvature of the spine” The doctor looked at me and said “Well done, you’re Google diagnosis was right”

Moving on, I was becoming conscious of my back and thought it made me look weird and not right. So I began having these negative thoughts, feeling low and just hated this thing called “Scoliosis”

One day after coming home from school, my back was completely aching, the pain was excruciating and I just couldn’t take it. My mum was doing a great job in being there for me and always telling me that everything was going to be okay, but I just hated the fact that my back stuck out, and my spine wasn’t straight.

Then one day I woke up, and thought to myself “Are you serious, is this seriously going to stop you from living life and being a happy person” then on I realized, what the hell?, who cares if my spine was slightly curved, and I didn’t have the most straightest back, so what if my spine isn’t straight?????

I realized, so many people out there, have far more worse cases of scoliosis, and some people have much worse things in their life, however are still remaining calm….there are people out there who have had their life so hard but are maintaining strong and happy….so I decided, to stop the self consciousness, and stop the obsessing over my back and start living, because at the end of the day, you only live once, and I can’t let something so small and silly like Scoliosis, stop me from doing what I love,

I finally believe, that this world has amazing things waiting for me, and wonderful opportunities that are waiting for me. I’m only 15 and inchallah with the power of God, have an amazing life waiting there for me, and so do all of you…. I guess my message really is to stop letting little things get in your life and just live, at the end of the day, life is too short to worry about every little thing.
To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
